Here are the 'can't miss' games coming out in June 2015


For gamers, it just doesn’t get any bigger than June. E3 Expo is just around the corner, and with it will come monumental new game announcements, breathtaking world premiere trailers, and thrilling updates for your favourite upcoming games. You’ve heard about food pairing, but what about game pairing? While you’re enjoying the excitement of E3, here are some games releasing this month you definitely won’t want to miss!

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
Release Date: June
Platform(s): PlayStation 4 Limited Edition / PlayStation 4 / Xbox One Limited Edition / Xbox One / PC & Mac
ESRB Rating: M (Mature)

The legendary Elder Scrolls series is going online for the first time on consoles with The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. This massively multiplayer online role-playing game lets you play as one of the continent of Tamriel’s many races, including the Nords, Bretons, Dunmer (Dark Elves), Orsimer (Orcs), Khajiit (a cat-like race), and many more. Play online with thousands of other players as you fight for control of Tamriel, or wage war against the evil Daedric Prince, Molag Bal. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited features all the major game updates since its release last year, including the new Justice and Champion systems.

Keep in mind that if you pre-order the game online at BestBuy.ca, you’ll gain access to the Explorers Pack, granting you the ability to play any race in any faction, a new vanity pet, and a bonus in-game treasure map.

LEGO Jurassic World
Release Date: June 12
Platform(s): PlayStation 4 / PlayStation 3 / PS Vita / Xbox One / Xbox 360 / Wii U / Nintendo 3DS
ESRB Rating:  E10+ (Everyone 10+)

My love for the LEGO video game series is no secret, which is why I’m getting pumped for the release of LEGO Jurassic World in just a few short days. This action-adventure game available on all major gaming platforms will take you through all four Jurassic Park films, as you relive iconic scenes from the original trilogy, plus experience the new Jurassic World for the very first time. The game features two-player co-operative mode, and more than 100 playable LEGO characters (including more than 20 species of dinosaurs).

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition
Release Date: June 16
Platform(s): PlayStation 4 / Xbox One
ESRB Rating:  M (Mature)

Another franchise near and dear to me is Payday, a co-operative first-person shooter that lets you play as four criminals—Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains—as they work their way up from small-time robberies to grand-scale bank heists. Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will be the first time this series comes to PS4 and Xbox One, delivering crisp HD graphics and two dozen DLC packs. This game is extremely intense and a lot of fun (especially online with friends), so get ready to embark on an epic crime spree on next-gen gaming consoles.

Remember too, if you pre-order Payday 2 Crimewave Edition for either Xbox One or PS4, you'll receive the HardTime Loot Bag containing a number of unique digital items!

Batman Arkham Knight
Release Date: June 23
Platform(s): PlayStation 4 Limited Edition / PlayStation 4 / Xbox One Limited Edition / Xbox One / PC
ESRB Rating:  M (Mature)

The finale of the incredible Batman Arkham series is nearly here, coming exclusively to PS4, Xbox One and PC. In this epic action-adventure game set one year after the events of 2011’s Batman: Arkham City, our caped crusader is confronted by some of Gotham’s most deadly villains—both new and old. You’ll also have a chance to drive around the city in Batman’s high powered Batmobile, performing speed boosts, jumps, and firing missiles to take out your enemies.

There’s still time to pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight and get your hands on some great bonuses, including Waynetech Booster Pack (online only) and play as Harley Quinn (online and in-store).

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward
Release Date: June 23
Platform(s): PlayStation 4 Limited Edition / PlayStation 4 / PC
ESRB Rating:  T (Teen)

Final Fantasy XIV, the second massively multiplayer online role-playing game in the series (with the first being Final Fantasy XI), is getting its first major expansion pack this month! In Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, you’ll travel to a new realm in Eorzea, called Ishgard, and experience the bloody thousand-year conflict between the knights of Ishgard and the dragons of Dravania. You can also look forward to a level cap increase from 50 to 60, a new playable race, new dungeons and raids, new primal battles, and new mounts that enable to you take to the skies (like flying black chocobos!)
